Don't just start sounding like a smart guy, but I'm sure people who send you doc files aren't the one or the ones to choose what application they will want in their company computers. If you have the MS Office, many people who might send you a doc will have no problem than have them all get stuck to ask what a pdf is to someone else.

Not that I'm telling everything should be run as MS Office, it sucks that everyone needs it to just get it read, but in the end, putting an ideal solution where it's just not worth the effort goes to philosophy problems.
